Greetings fellow Humans!
It is with great joy that I can now announce the Grand Reopening event for Auctoria Event Planet, back and better than ever! We are now negotiating with the elemental engineers in order to lease one (1) captured Alien Teleporter Device, Serial Number 00FU, for installation in the newly constructed Spectator’s Retreat! Once complete, we hope that this device will work better than the 00FT device captured from the zirax homeworld, which allegedly turned a test contestant inside out. (Interstellar law dictates that we must inform you that it is our belief that this was a pre-existing condition, and in no way due to improper use of teleportation technology).
So back once again will of course be our Auctoria Main Event. On top of that, we have the hand to hand arena (under construction), HV Duel field, and host site for SV competitions both organized and ad hoc. As usual, those with ideas for events to be hosted on Auctoria are welcome to submit their suggestions, and if possible we will implement them!
The planet will be open to visitors as soon as possible, with intermittent events throughout the opening weekend. During this time, factions who wish to compete in the first Main Event may scout out a location that they want, and claim it for themselves. It is requested that the placeholder pads marking these locations not be attacked during this time, as they hold no material value, but are there to ensure the integrity of the event. In the event of an accidental decoring of the structure, please place a core, and contact LoT Personnel to come and recover posession of the pad. On Sunday night the first contestants may take control of their chosen location, and begin building.
A note: These sites are not inherently equal! Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, and part of the challenge is choosing one that will suit your abilities, and you feel offers you the best chance at surviving the weekend.
Some basic information on the planet:
Auctoria (Formerly known as Zirax Planetoid MX-3824766)
Once the jewel of the Zirax empire, Humans have since claimed it for themselves in order to host their bloody proving grounds which have turned out some of the most legendary freelance operators the universe has ever seen. During the week, a planet wide interdiction field similar to the type found on the Elemental Capital City prevents weapon fire from harming humans and Terran structures. However, on friday afternoon this field is lowered, and will remain down until sunday afternoon. This provides the window for the Competitions hosted on the planet. Due to the power requirements of maintaining this window, visitors will notice a sharp change in planetary conditions during these dangerous times, most noticeable among them being a near doubling in the gravitational field of the planet.
PVE Sunday Night - Friday Night
PVP Friday Night - Sunday Night
1 Base per faction, factioned only. In order for a base to be eligible for the Auctoria Main Event competition, it must be build on site (no blueprints) starting from one of the pre designated spots, chosen each week by event personnel. These spots are marked “Contestant Base 01” - “Contestant Base 08”. Visitors are allowed to build small temporary bases, provided they do not infringe upon event areas, and that the owner is aware that the base is subject to attack as part of the Main Event. The planet is home to all common minerals that are necessary for construction of basic elements of survival, and visitors are welcome to mine whatever they may need or desire.
Primary enrollment for Auctoria Event has begun! Those wishing to participate in any of the events this weekend, or support the competition in any way should respond to this post. We are planning on kicking off the friday festivities with an arena duel competition in the newly renovated Thunderdome. All are welcome to participate, no materials are required, Everything from armor to meds will be provided for you, and no personal items are permitted in the arena in order to keep the competition fair.
